San Bernardino Construction Accident Attorney
Your Experienced Construction Accident Attorney
According to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly 1 in 5 workplace deaths in 2015 were due to construction accidents. Employers owe a duty of care to keep their employees safe, especially since the risk of construction deaths is so high.
Common types of construction accidents include slip and falls, electrocutions, machine malfunctions, explosions or fires, falling debris and getting caught between objects.
Workers can sustain injuries from extreme fatigue and over exhaustion, which is why it is essentials that workers receive sufficient breaks to avoid accidents. If you have been injured in a construction accident, filing a workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible can help you receive the financial settlement you deserve.
If you are covered by your employer’s policy, then you may be able to file for workers’ compensation benefits. In California, since the statute of limitations on workers’ compensation claims is just 1 year, you need to report any workplace injuries as soon as they happen. If your workplace injury causes a disability, then you may be able to get a portion of your missing wages. However, you will not get any compensation for your pain and suffering or for any hardships endured due to your injuries. In some situations, the injured party may be able to pursue compensation for all missing wages, noneconomic damages and the cost of medical treatments not covered by the worker’s compensation provider by filing a personal injury claim. You are able to file a personal injury claim if you were injured as an independent contractor or your employer acted in a negligent matter in a way that either caused or contributed to your accident.
Personal injury claims stand on at-fault rules, meaning the following evidence should be used to increase the validity of your claim:
Medical records, witness statements and security camera footage
